Sleep apnea is a dangerous, under-diagnosed and under-treated disease. According to ISRAEL21c, the Israeli company SleepUp has come up with a line of gadgets designed for diagnosis and treatment of sleep apnea. The devices are “smaller, lighter, and more comfortable to use” than the typical strap-on-your-face CPAP mask.
The company currently has three innovative, high tech, smart sensor equipped products (just open the extended part of the post to view), and additional products — with reassuring names like AirThrough™ Pacifier — coming to the market. Gadget descriptions below are taken from the firm’s website.
— The AICOT™, AIrway COllapse Treatment — an upper mouth airway collapse treatment and monitoring of Sleep Apnea, an oral adjustable device, that the patient inserts into his mouth before sleep. The device’s unique shape opens a free airway and restrains the tongue. The solution helps in treating mild and moderate cases of sleep apnea.
— STEMA ™ – Sleep Trend Electronic Monitoring and Analysis — a monitoring unit that is combined with the SleepUp AICOT ™ and collects, via smart sensors, physical data during the patient’s sleep.
When the AICOT ™ is removed from the mouth and put into the socket, the transmission unit transmits the data to a remote server, thus allowing a physician or case manager to analyze the data and to determine the patient’s sleep quality. The tool allows physicians to track and monitor their Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) patients thus providing accurate and beneficial conclusions.
— The FPAP ™, Free Positive Air Pressure generator treats the more severe cases of Obstructive Sleep Apnea, in combination with the SleepUp AICOT ™. The FPAP ™ comfortable design promises easy and friendly use by the patient.
The quiet operation allows for a good night’s sleep without any cumbersome tubing or compressors.
